Abstract:

In this manual for living the Christian life, the author explores the so-called Big Questions that challenge people of all ages: What is it to be human? Why am I here? What can I believe in? How should I invest my life? Through these letters written to his own adult children, Jinkins converses with a startling range of thinkers and writers - from Calvin to Rumi - and offers searching, loving testimony to his own faith. In doing so, he is critical not only of "religion" and the church but also of mere vapid "spirituality." This book offers vital food for thought - and for authentic Christian living. -- Publisher.
